Package consist of Axminster Hobby Series AWSL Woodturning Lathe and Axminster Woodturning Starter Kit Chuck Package. Chuck Option either; SK100 or SK80.
Axminster Hobby Series AWSL Woodturning Lathe
A small hobby lathe with five spindle speeds, 240mm diameter turning capacity and 440mm between centres. Well suited to the newcomer to turning who has a limited budget available and only space enough for a small lathe. The headstock, bed and tailstock are constructed of heavy cast iron whilst the 375W induction motor has more than enough power for the type of projects likely to be produced on a lathe of this size. The five spindle speeds give a useful range of between 760-3,200rpm. Both the headstock spindle and tailstock barrel are bored to take 2MT accessories, with the spindle having the common 1" x 8tpi thread. An extension bed is available to provide up to 965mm between centres, for a standard lamp or chair legs perhaps? The tailstock also has a hollow barrel to enable long hole boring. Supplied with Axminster drive and revolving tailstock centres, 75mm diameter faceplate and 150mm tool rest.
N.B. The distance between centres will vary and be dependent on the type of centres or accessories used.
Axminster Woodturning Starter Kit SK100 Chuck Package: 100mm diameter chuck and accessories
Axminster Woodturning Starter Kit SK80 Chuck Package: 80mm diameter chuck and accessories
Made in Axminster, these chucks are the result of more than 30 years of experience in the manufacture of woodturning chucks and accessories. This latest version uses CNC production techniques to ensure your chuck is as accurate and reliable as possible. The stainless steel chuck body including the thread is a single piece, maximising concentricity and minimising vibration during use. The chuck features our SafetyJaw accessory mounting jaws which have rounded corners and includes a chuck key. Packed into a strong plastic storage box, this starter set includes a set of dovetail jaws (size C), a matching faceplate ring and a screw chuck. The set gives you plenty of scope from mounting blanks for initial turning to final completion of another well executed project.
